Time to Plant

It’s a good time to plant. Conditions appear just right to plant our vegetation corridor on Chinaman’s Creek and we hope you can join us.

On Sunday, June 21 we will set out to plant 1,500 seedlings at a site on Creasey’s Road.

This will complete the current Chinaman’s Creek Project, allow us to acquit our grant and begin planning new projects in the Muckleford catchment.

We will start work at 11am and finish by 4pm. We will provide tea/coffee and a nourishing (vegetarian) lunch at around 1pm. Contributions towards an afternoon tea would be appreciated.

Our planting system is both efficient and relatively easy. The site has been pre-prepared and the seedlings will be put in place with a pottiputki (if you don’t know what this is, we suggest you look it up on Wikipedia). Our volunteer force will then secure the plants and place guards around them. Very straight forward, a little repetitive but no-one actually has to dig holes. It is a system we have had great success with over the last few years.

This is a good opportunity to make a personal contribution to a valuable local project, meet other locals and also gain rare access to a lovely, dramatic site poised above the creek on private land.

If you can make it, even for part of the day, we would appreciate you letting us know so that we can plan for numbers at lunch. Let us know by return email.

We will send out further details a few days before hand with a map and further directions to the site.

We hope you can join us and look forward to hearing from you.

Sunday, June 21.
11am – 4pm.

    Hello Paul, I would love to have been involved in this planting but will be in UK .. it’s a great project and I wish you luck with the weather both on the day and during the establishment period. I look forward to becoming more active with Muckleford Landcare on my return. Meanwhile, hope you have a good turnout and have a great day on the 21st. regards, pam connell >
